Digital resources: researchers need better access and more training | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it
A British Library report into research behaviour and information seeking habits finds that along with access to online resources, training in how to make best use of those resources, is lacking.

 

Although today's young researchers appear at ease in the digital world, a report published in 2008 provided early notice that all may not be as it seems. It told us that while young people were very familiar with technology, they often lacked the critical skills to assess and analyse the information they were finding in a meaningful way: relying too heavily on search engines and not reading articles thoroughly.
